Tata Harrier And Safari Get Five Star Safety Ratings

Global NCAP conducted tests using its new test protocols on these flagship models, meaning they cannot be directly compared with Mahindra XUV700 which was put through its old protocol tests.

Adult Occupant Protection

Tata Harrier and Safari SUVs were recently tested under NCAP’s crash test regime, and have both received five-star scores for adult safety – an unprecedented result for Indian-made car!.

Harrier and Safari SUVs have achieved five-star crash test ratings from Bharat NCAP’s new crash tests, such as frontal offset deformable barrier, side impact and pole side crash tests. Both vehicles were released just last October yet have received outstanding marks for adult and child occupant protection respectively.

The test results of these cars showed that they offer excellent levels of protection for the driver’s and passenger’s head, neck and chest areas in the frontal impact test. In the side impact test, both occupants’ heads, necks and chests were adequately protected, while their knees and tibias were well-protected as well.

Both the Harrier and Safari SUVs also offered great child occupant protection in the crash tests.

Under frontal impact testing, SUVs were found to offer “good” protection for driver head, neck and tibias; furthermore the Harrier was able to shield passenger knees and feet as well. Furthermore, car offered adequate chest and left calf protection.

However, the frontal pole impact test showed marginal protection of chest injuries for the occupant. On the other hand, thanks to robust bodyshell design and standard inclusion of curtain airbags, side impact tests proved more successful in protecting them adequately.

Tata’s Safari and Harrier vehicles both utilize its OMEGARC platform. Both vehicles boast numerous safety features such as 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, ISOFIX mounts, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Traction Control, as well as Electronic Stability Program and Traction Control on higher variants of both models. In addition, 7 airbags and an ADAS suite may also be added on as options.

At the child occupant protection test, SUVs were successful in safeguarding 18-month-old and 3-year-old occupants safely. Both models used Isofix mounts to safely secure child seats while providing adequate head, torso, leg protection during side impact tests; additionally they provided sufficient knee protection during frontal impacts tests.

Additionally, both models come equipped with high-quality child restraint systems featuring I-size anchorages and support legs, enabling them to achieve a dynamic score of 24.

Child Occupant Protection

Both the Safari and Harrier were refreshed earlier this year with new features, including updated exterior designs and interior upgrades. Now, India’s manufacturers have further strengthened the safety features for both SUVs by installing numerous safety systems – they both earned five-star safety ratings from Global NCAP.

Tata Safari and Harrier SUVs both utilize an OMEGARC architecture derived from Land Rover’s D8 Platform, offering six airbags as standard across their cabin, retractor, pretensioner and load limiter seatbelts, ISOFIX mounts for child seats, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), hill hold control, 360 degree surround camera system and Level 2 ADAS features for enhanced passenger protection during both symmetric crashes as well as side pole impacts. Both SUVs also boast enhanced reinforced cabins to help shield passengers during both scenarios.

The new SUVs were tested under the latest Global NCAP crash test protocol and received five-star adult occupant protection scores. In particular, the Harrier even broke through barriers during frontal impact tests; joining Tesla Model S as one of only two SUVs that achieved this status.

Safari and Harrier SUVs also performed well in other tests, receiving high marks from Bharat NCAP for side movable barrier tests as well as acceptable ratings in chest and pelvis region testing by Global NCAP, plus “acceptable” ratings in pedestrian protection and side impact pole tests respectively.

Safari and Harrier were each awarded a maximum dynamic score of 24 in passenger protection tests, protecting dummies in all impact scenarios that included forward collision, head-on and rear-end crash tests. Airbags, seatbelts and headrests in both front and rear positions performed as expected based on this test score. Top trim versions also come equipped with Autonomous ADAS packs that take safety further by including adaptive cruise control, bend cruise assistance traffic jam assistance and lane departure warning warning capabilities among other features.

Pedestrian Protection

Pedestrian safety is one of the main factors considered when awarding high scores in the Bharat New Car Assessment Programme, and both refreshed Tata Harrier and Safari SUVs achieved maximum 5-star ratings for adult occupant and child occupant protection, both equipped with six airbags for total protection as well as strong structures with reliable restraint systems.

Harrier and Safari models both utilize the OMEGARC platform, a heavily modified iteration of Land Rover’s D8 architecture. Both SUVs have transitioned away from traditional body-on-frame designs towards monocoque platforms that make them lighter and safer, using high-strength steel and advanced materials for efficient crumple zones and structural integrity.

Safari and Harrier models feature ISOFIX anchorages, passenger airbag disabling switch, seatbelt pretensioners and three-point seat belts to meet UN127 and GTR9 pedestrian protection requirements, while adhering to Global NCAP ESC requirements – seat belt reminders in all seating positions, as well as optional ADAS technology – for pedestrian protection.

At crash tests, both facelifted Safari and Harrier models were put through frontal, side and pole impact tests to replicate real world driving conditions. Furthermore, an SUV crash simulation test replicated real driving scenarios was also performed on them – with all tests maintaining five star ratings for these SUVs.

This marks a landmark event for Tata India as both their refreshed flagship SUVs have finally been evaluated by BNCAP. While many Tata cars sold in India have earned good scores from GNCAP such as Tiago and Punch, their respective flagship SUVs had yet to prove their safety credentials.

Tata Motors’ Safari and Harrier vehicles were recently unveiled, so these results are all the more impressive considering they were recently unveiled. These results demonstrate Tata’s concerted efforts to enhance quality and safety features within their vehicles – hopefully a trend which continues with future models from this Indian carmaker. Alejandro Furas, Secretary General of ANCAP praised both SUVs for achieving such great acclaim – he hopes more Indian vehicles can follow their example and achieve similar recognition in future.

Electronic Stability Control

As well as offering standard safety features like ABS with EBD and traction control, both the Tata Harrier and Safari come equipped with Electronic Stability Program (ESP). This combines ABS and traction control systems together in order to prevent wheel spin during sudden braking or cornering and keep engine speeds within their optimal zones – similar to how performance bikes use slipper clutches to prevent excessive revving or rear-wheel hopping during hard acceleration.

Tata Safari and Harrier SUVs both earned 5-star adult occupant protection ratings during GNCAP dynamic crash tests, due to their robust designs and effective restraint systems. Furthermore, both models proved full child occupant protection; both feature ISOFIX anchorages for ISOFIX anchorages for child seats as well as passenger airbag disabling switches that automatically disarm, seatbelt reminders for all passengers as well as ISOFIX anchorages that meet UN127 and GTR9 pedestrian requirements and offer excellent frontal impact protection.

Tata Motors’ Safari and Harrier SUVs demonstrate its dedication to improving vehicular safety across India, but their flagship models such as Tiago, Tigor, Altroz, Nexon and Punch still don’t hold five-star safety ratings from GNCAP; thus making these two SUVs standout examples from Tata. However, given Bharat NCAP is only currently testing these two SUVs under this program, other flagship models may follow soon enough.

Both the Safari and Harrier SUVs displayed excellent levels of child safety during dynamic testing by GNCAP, providing complete protection for both rear-facing and forward-facing children, with good chest and head protection in a side impact test for 3-year olds. Both SUVs also met UN127/GTR9 pedestrian protection requirements while offering ISOFIX anchorages, passenger airbag disabling switches for child seats, as well as seatbelt reminders to all passengers.

Both models provide drivers with numerous driver assistance features such as hill hold control, rear parking sensors, blind spot detection, lane change alert, tire pressure monitoring system and front collision warning, along with city braking assist and reverse assist features to make driving even safer and more convenient for passengers. Both also come equipped with connectivity and entertainment features designed to enhance passenger comfort and convenience.
